NAPLES, Fla. A 14-year-old girl won $10,000 on national television for her “pork perfection.”

Taylor Sanders, a resident of Naples, was one of the eight talented kids that participated on the Food Network’s “Kids BBQ Championships” on Monday. Sanders was recognized for her pork chops.

“I think out of everybody, you were the one that most represented the challenge,” judge Eddie Jackson said.

Sanders has been working in her aunt and uncle’s restaurant since she was young. Sanders hopes to open up her own restaurant or food truck in the future.

“I’m over the moon,” Sanders said after she was announced as the champion.
